A Gift Recently Became Necessary!

If you woke up this morning and thought, “What’s going on in Smithtown, New York, today is your day!

For example, March 28th was “Pet Photos with the Easter Bunny” day at the Smith Haven Mall!

Take a spin class at the Mid-Island Jewish Community Center, Tuesday's at 4:30!

Classes are virtual.

After your spin you can go to the locally owned Sal’s Ristorante and Bar and pick-up your dinner curbside. I suggest the lasagna which Long Island’s hometown newspaper Newsday called, “One of Long Island’s top ten!”

It’s a big island! That’s a flex!

I’m on the Highway to Hell

Stamford, Connecticut and Smithtown are two cities separated by two-hours of driving hell.

On the good days!

The section of route 95 through Stamford is the stretch of highway you should envision when you hear about our country’s deteriorating infrastructure. Pass through two of New York’s five boroughs, THE Bronx and Queens and if your kidneys and patience are still in tact, you get on the Long Island Expressway and east towards Smithtown.

The “LIE” as locals call it, is the second most congested highway in the country behind the 405 freeway in Los Angeles.

The 66-miles from Stamford to Smithtown would take two to four hours. A long way to go to visit a town where one of the “top-ten things to do in Smithtown” is visit the Statue of Whisper the Bull.

A TripAdvisor review from February details that experience. “By far, the most impressive anatomically correct bronze bull statue in all of Long Island or at least Smithtown. Come by in spring time and see if the graduating seniors have painted the testicles for this year’s senior prank.”
